Knock Out Kaine
« on: April 17, 2013, 07:22:34 AM »
It was mentioned that those who attended the video shoot would receive a copy of the single on its release.

For those, like myself, who like to use old fashioned CDs, will there be a chance to buy the single on CD?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who would think that it would be nice to own a physical copy of the single, preferably with the video on it as a multimedia extra.

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.

That's a bit new fangled Sam, typical over engineered solution - surely you just want the sheet music

I'd sell the CD on the stall if it was available?

Mock all you want, but saturday is the annual Record Shop Day.

I will be going to the most local participant to buy myself a Pink Vinyl copy of Pink Floyd's "See Emily Play", a 12" Picture Disc of Marillion's "Grendel" and a 7" EP of Jethro Tull's "Living In The Past".

It would've been nice to also buy a Vulcan Shaped Picture Disc of Knock Out Kaine's "Set The Night On Fire".

However, the planned CD Single will suit me fine, especially if it has the video included as a multimedia section.

For those who knock dinosaurs like myself that prefer to buy CDs, take note!

When you buy legal downloads from iTunes, you do not get the full quality you get from a CD!!!

You are paying almost full price for an inferior product!

Also, you can't take a download along to a gig to get the band to sign it!!!

However, as all the proceeds are going to our lady, I shall be doing my bit and downloading the single.

It's just I'd also like a nice CD to blast through my Mission Speakers which are powered by a Technics Amplifier that has a sound that's smoother than a nice Cask Conditioned Pint on a hot summer afternoon!!!

A band like Knock Out Kaine deserves nothing less!!!

Don't worry Rob I was told I'm living in the dark ages the other day because I don't use catch up TV, lol - Why would I want too when my BB speed is not consistent enough and when I have a pvr to record what I want.

Each to their own, there are a lot of music buffs like yourself.

Not just iTunes.....any download that uses the more common types of files such as .MP3
These normally tend to have a bit-rate of about 320kbit/s ..... compare that to a proper CD , which is between 1200-1500kbit/s , 4-5 times higher !!

We are getting a supply in to sell in the webstore (along with the T-shirts) and we can get some out to the regions too if we are asked.

Probably late June though due to production time on the video as it will be a joint release to push the whole thing....

More on this soon.

On the subject of download quality, I listened to an interesting interview with Roger Taylor (of Queen) recently. He was bemoaning the production quality of some 'modern' music, which he considers inferior to the pre-download era, as so many of the subtle nuances of production are lost in the compression process that many producers are no longer bothering with the attention to detail needed for vinyl / CD release.

In addition, people are incresingly listening using portable devices, meaning they never encounter the full fidelity of the original performance / recording. RT's view was that very few younger people are using separates systems these days that reproduce the sound quality and depth intended by the artist, which is a crying shame...

Still got my Cambridge Audio CD player, Quad interconnects, Technics amp and Acoustic Energy floorstanders  :D
